We´ve been working hard but the members have been having a lot of trials. People are sick, passing away and it makes it impossible for their ´centro de fortaleza´ to work. We´re seeing the results of NOT using the ¨centros¨ because even though we went over to their house with members and read the Book of Mormon with them, prayed with them and so much more, they didn´t come to church. Its not the same! We need them in order for it to work as it has in the past. But we aren´t going to give up. We´re going to need to do a huge effort to get more member families excited about the work and start up more centros. I feel like that's whats going to bring in the most success. When we have success in the centros, it creates a triangle of blessed and happy people: us, the members and the converts.
Tomorrow we have transfers! I really hope to stay here, but I´m willing to serve wherever it may be. I feel the slight pull to get a little lazy and start falling back into the comfort of mediocrity, but that's not what my spirit desires. I want excellence and that only comes with hard work.
I know that this gospel brings peace, joy and many blessings.
I know that these blessings are available to all who search diligently in the scriptures and pray with humility and learn to hear the promptings of the spirit. All who have the disire to live a life harmonious with His will, can if they do so.
Thanks for your support, love and prayers
